Internet Explorer As predicted, more Microsoft news from MIX10, and this is some big stuff: Internet Explorer 9. As we all know, Microsoft really let Internet Explorer rot away, allowing competitors to make much better browsers with better standards compliance and performance. With IE9, Microsoft is aiming to not just close that gap - but to overtake the competition. Update: Ars has an in-depth look at the platform preview.

"A hot iron is obviously standards compliance, and it appears that Microsoft has finally learnt its lesson with this one."

This is just the cycle of "embrace, extend, exterminate" that is typical of MS. I'm not saying this is either good or bad, as I believe it has led to both.
